Saddened

My opinion....I've read most of the complaints and topics here about people losing there jobs from covid and then they filed for unemployment, and how they are losing everything. Yes this is very sad, and if I may say our government seems like they have no idea on how to fix this, just like everything else the government handles.(" Ever since the very first day that money took over trade").This country has been in debt.(this is my opinion). I must be fortunate that even though I lost everything too,had to shut down my doors after 30 plus yrs of business. I never once relied on anyone else.no government fund.no unemployment help.even if I didnt have all this stuff I still refuse to ask for help by our government.they havent gotten it right for over 234 yrs so why would it change now. As I said before this is my opinion yours may be different. They say this is the greatest nation in the world..I ask all of you.........."IS IT"....as always stay safe! ....PS BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR A RELPY TO THIS FROM ME EXPLAINING ANOTHER OPINION.AND THE POINT EVERYONE HAS MISSED. THANK YOU...#coronavirus #advice #government #unemployment #stressful

We are all told we live in the best country... We see people from different countries doing just about anything to live in our country...We hear and see about all the money we give other countries...but fail our own people with high health costs, high dental costs, the list goes on and on...why do some have an attitude because maybe they just were told they have cancer and they have insurance that makes them pay the first $6,000.00 that will bury them financially or maybe they have a really bad toothache that throbs so hard it brings tears to their eyes but the dentist won't treat them without full payment up front. People come here from other countries and these services are free for them....but not us hard working for kibble folks that have so many different things that need to be taken care if first so we have food and and roof over our heads...it really is hard to be happy anymore...and I know I am tired of watching all of them on Capital Hill fighting among each other wanting stupid stuff that don't make a difference for you or me. Just my opinion on a Sunday night picking my grand daughter up from her job af washing dishes and wondering what does her future really hold.....it really does put tears in my eyes....I know we can get this country back on track but we really have to start getting rid of the takers and get some givers in there. God bless everyone.

Although noone knows my case of how low I've become ,or how much I have lots .....do to things out of my control. Before this pandemic ,none of this stuff ,government crap mattered to me. Ive seen what all of this has done to all of my friends ,family and all of you.... I'm not sure anymore if anyone listens to what I had to say...I think you all have come to your own conclusions about what's wrong with what you have going on..... I knew this post was going to blow up.. because of all the things that our government and president should of done the minute they found out about what was about to happen...... I've been lower then the mud under that damn bridge.... and I ate the fish and frogs and the turtles,that lived in it....I've never asked for HELP from anyone EVER.... But I've never turned anyone down.if they had a place for me to stay. Or something for me to eat. My life now I have a damn good career.my business is still here just not running because i sold everything to stay a float.to help pay for my house .... This post wasn't to reflect on a pandemic it was just an (opinion)..about trade and money.

I totally agree and its sad that when people trying their best it's always something to knock a person off they square. just to end up losing alot or having to pay back money which is sad especially when it's giving to you and earned.

I believe that the government keeps us in poverty so that we have no choice to but to rely on them to help/take care of us. It's what helps keep them in control! They are completely consumed with greed and power and the only way they get paid is through our taxes and other corporate donors. They ALL lie, making empty promises in order to get "new blood" who share their same morals and values. The independent/progressives are the ones who have our best interest at heart but most people are falsely taught that "socialism" is a bad thing, therefore they get pushed out of the "limelight" when trying to run for presidency. This happened to Bernie Sanders and Andrew Yang when they were campaigning for the presidency. Other countries such as Canada, their government is taking care of their people and aren't afraid or complain that yes, they may pay higher taxes but are genuinely happy because nobody is living in poverty! Our government is divided through political interests and yet we keep being lied to in order to keep voting these jackasses into office! As long as we have divided leaders, we will have a divided nation! That's why things have gotten so ugly especially in this last election. Trump didn't exactly help matters and has caused an even substantially bigger divide! All he cared about was golfing and how well Wall Street was doing which had NOTHING to do with how well our economy was/is doing. People believe that the Dems are the ones who made this new virus look worse than it actually is...maybe it is or maybe it isn't but it doesn't matter. All this did, was shine a spotlight on all the cockroaches who make our laws! So maybe this outbreak was somehow a blessing in disguise?? Unfortunately this "blessing" has cost hundreds of thousands of people's lives. But it's like if sacrifices aren't somehow made, then it seems like nobody seems to open their eyes to what's really going on! And yet, there are people who still turn a blind eye in order to defend the ones they follow...the ones who continued to divide us! I guess we may as well accept that we will never get out of this vicious cycle! BREAKS MY HEART!! The rich are rewarded so they stay in this country but they keep the rest of us poor and struggling so we can't afford to move out of this country! #fiscallystuckasauscitizen

The problem with not asking for help is the non deserving are applying and getting the funds, so they win, your morals are strong but your sitting on the curb. The best way is to use the system to the fullest. It will become a burden faster and they will have to respond to the failure that has been created. And your not on the curb.

I have to agree with your opinion to a certain stance. I do not believe that our country is in great standing with God or any country because our country is a complete mess at the hands of all of us. The politicians because they knew to do what was right for this country and they chose not to. Then, ‘We The People’ because for generations since approximately 1942 we have stuck our heads in the sands allowing these politicians out of their greed and love of money and power, for a desire to control, and for the lack of concern for the office they promised to uphold in righteousness that we did not push them back and stand up telling these narcissistic human being ‘No’ and either force them to uphold the office as they promised to or replace them with another that will. It is our faults we allowed the career politicians to be in office for as long as they have. So technically, whether we received help or not, we are ALL at fault. Now the questions we are really dealing with is 1. How do we fix this mess and 2. How do we get those out of office who are actually creating the chaotic damage to ‘We The People’ peacefully and in a righteous and orderly fashion that will bring our laws back in a right standing order? and last, 3. Is this too late for America and Americans as we knew it?
These are what we are actually dealing with.
